Sox-ADOPTED!

Sox is a sweet 1.5 year-old Black Lab mix female who found herself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter. She came into the shelter nursing a litter of puppies all of whom were adopted leaving Sox without a place to go. Fortunately, the shelter reached out to us for help with her so Sox made the trip to Canine Lifeline so she could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Sox is a very loving girl who is eager to live the life of a pampered pup herself now that she’s spayed and her days of raising pups are behind her. You can tell she’s been a mom dog because she’s very quick to correct dogs who she perceives as being too rowdy or pushy with her. She does well with the other dogs in her foster home but we think she might enjoy having all of her new family’s attention to herself. Sox met the resident kitty at the vet clinic and showed little interest in her so might be fine living with cats. She has excellent crate manners so may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. When Sox came to us, she had little to no idea what leash walking was all about but she’s been a quick study and now does quite well on a leash. She can’t wait to experience how wonderful a dog’s life can and should be in her new home. Sox weighs about 42 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
